Construction Management Services

A construction manager is typically brought into the project from its inception to assist in the design phase and to oversee construction through to completion.  The CM acts as an agent of the owner and coordinates the project timeline and budget.

Agency CM aka CM Advisor
In this instance, the CM role is to be an independent professional adviser to the owner on all parts of the project, managing the project on behalf of the owner from conception to completion.  Payment for this CM role is usually on a fee basis.

CM At-Risk or CM Constructor
This expands the role of the CM to not only providing professional advice to the owner, but to also act as the general contractor.  In this role, the CM has assumed the responsibilities, or risk, of delivering the project at a guaranteed maximum price.  So now the CM is acting as the Contractor as well as the CM.
